The leafy thalli of species of the marine red algal genus Porphyra grow rapidly but persist for a relatively short time on rocky intertidal or subtidal substrata or as epiphytes on other marine plants. In most species, the large, short-lived leafy thalli alternate with small, presumably perennial, filamentous ‘conchocelis’ plants. Depending on the species of northeastern Pacific Porphyra, photoperiod and temperature are important regulators of conchospore formation and release. Data from… Expand

SEASONAL GROWTH AND PHENOTYPIC VARIATION IN PORPHYRA LINEARIS (RHODOPHYTA) POPULATIONS ON THE WEST COAST OF IRELAND 1
TLDR
Thallus length and width of individuals from one population were significantly longer throughout the sample period, and reproduction and sporulation occurred 1 month earlier than in the other population, suggesting a degree of phenotypic differentiation between the two populations. Expand
Porphyra cultivation in Alaska: conchocelis growth of three indigenous species
Experiments were performed to determine the range and optima of environmental conditions under which indigenous species of Alaskan Porphyra can grow. Growth of the conchocelis phase of PorphyraExpand
Distribution and population dynamics of Porphyra (Bangiales, Rhodophyta) in the southern Western Cape, South Africa
TLDR
Although it seems that most sites in the southern Western Cape are suitable for harvesting, the taxonomy of the genus in the region urgently needs revision if populations are to be appropriately managed. Expand
ANALYSIS OF SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL DIVERSITY AND DISTRIBUTION OF PORPHYRA (RHODOPHYTA) IN SOUTHEASTERN NEW ZEALAND SUPPORTED BY THE USE OF MOLECULAR TOOLS 1
TLDR
It is concluded that morphologically similar species in a similar habitat rely on physiological mechanisms for survival, and no distinct intertidal zonation patterns within the genus Porphyra are shown. Expand
Effects of plant growth substances on the conchocelis phase of Alaskan Porphyra (Bangiales, Rhodophyta) species in conjunction with environmental variables 1
TLDR
The effect of plant growth substances (PGSs) on conchocelis growth of Alaskan Porphyra and pseudolanceolata was investigated and higher temperatures resulted in higher growth rates, in contrast to P. abbottiae and P. pseudolinearis, which grew faster at the lower temperatures. Expand
Life cycle of Porphyra vietnamensis Tanaka & Pham-Hoang Ho from Thailand
Porphyra vietnamensis Tanaka & Pham-Hoang Ho is a tropical species of high potential for farming. Studies of the life cycle have been conducted for many years but have not been successful untilExpand
Comparative culture experiments with filamentous members of the Bangiales (Rhodophyta) from New Zealand: Insights into ecologic adaptation and biogeography
TLDR
It was concluded that the practical use of these morphometric analyses is limited given the experimental growth period and replication required, and the most useful characters for delineating filamentous Bangiales taxa were found to be the germination rates of spores, growth rates of filaments, timing and amount of spore release, and mortality of Filaments. Expand
Developing Porphyra/salmon integrated aquaculture for bioremediation and diversification of the aquaculture industry
TLDR
To enable the production of conchospores for net seeding, the phenology of these species and the conditions for their vegetative conchocelis exponential growth, conchosporangium induction, and Conchospore maturation were determined. Expand
Life history of Porphyra hollenbergii Dawson (Bangiales, Rhodophyta) from the Gulf of California, México
TLDR
It is found that water temperatures were the limiting factor for conchocelis growth and the combination of photoperiod and high water temperatures that are the environmental conditions that appear to control the development of archeospores and conchospores. Expand
An evaluation of characters obtained from life history studies for distinguishing New Zealand Porphyra species
TLDR
The comparative taxonomic value of a range of such characters is discussed, including reporting a novel reproductive mode in Porphyra, most of which are undescribed. Expand

CONCHOCELIS GROWTH AND PHOTOPERIODIC CONTROL OF CONCHOSPORE RELEASE IN PORPHYRA TORTA (RHODOPHYTA) 1
TLDR
The conditions which give optimal growth and conchospore release in laboratory cultures of free conchocelis of the red alga Porphyra torta Krishnamurthy are determined. Expand
Porphyra nereocystis: A dual-daylength seaweed
TLDR
P. nereocystis is the first known dualdaylength seaweed and requires a short-day-longday treatment for completion of its life cycle, and this stringent environmental control of its reproduction appears to be an adaptation to coordinate conchospore production with the seasonal availability of its host kelp NereocyStis.

On the Position of Meiosis in the Life History of Porphyra torta (Rhodophyta)
TLDR
The characteristics of the first division of the conchospore and the change in ploidy at the two-celled stage indicate that meiosis I occurs during the germination division of The Porphyra torta Krishnamurthy alga. Expand

TLDR
Whole thallus absorptance spectra were recorded for Porphyra abbottae Krishnamurthy gametophytes grown in batch culture at combinations of temperature, irradiance, nutrients, water motion and the interaction of nutrients with water motion, and Absorptance ratios were significantly correlated with growth rate.
